South Devon beaches in the awards

Anyone who has taken a trip or stayed in and around the region for family holidays in Devon will have no doubt visited one of the superb beaches we have here. And now they have been rewarded for being so exceptional! Slapton and Bigbury have been named in the Top 20 UK’s best beaches in the Travellers’ Choice Beaches Awards, announced by travel website TripAdvisor.


Neighbouring regions also managed fantastic accolades with North Devon’s Woolacombe beach ranking highly too.

“These awards recognise the best beaches in the UK and worldwide, according to the travellers that have visited and given them the highest levels of praise,” commented James Kay, TripAdvisor spokesperson. “To have a Devon beach named among the best in Europe just goes to show how lucky we are in the UK to have such stunning scenery right on our doorstep.”

Slapton Sands and Bigbury-on-Sea took 16th and 17th place respectively in the UK with North Devon’s Saunton Sands Beach coming in 24th place.
